Summary: I purchased to do quick realestate photography and asked the guy in the camera shop if this was the best one to get. told him it was a back up cam and would need to work for newspaper advertising and brochures. Its crap. Reproduction for brochures is grainy and noting near the quality I need as it saves pics at 72dpi and need 300dpi for print. have contacted Ricoh and they were useless. have tried incresing dpi through photoshop and still poor print quality.
Pros: Wide angle lens is great, Compact easy to carry around, Picture quality for web is OK.
